LEDR Recycling (Landfill-Environmental-Diversion-Reclamation) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the end of March at a new state-of-the-art indoor material recovery facility that will feature a customized CBI-built construction and demolition (C&D) recycling centre. John Davis, president and managing partner of LEDR Recycling, is opening the 35,000 square foot facility close to St. Louis, Missouri, knowing the city’s metropolitan area continues to grow at the same time that the operating windows for regional landfills are closing.
CBI designed, manufactured and shipped the C&D recycling centre out of its Newton, New Hampshire headquarters. Expected to start operating full-time by the end of April 2015, the system is expected to process over 50 tons of throughput per hour and will accept materials such as wood, concrete, drywall, plastic, metal, cardboard and aggregates. The facility will operate for eight to 10 hours per day, five to six days a week. A specialized CBI Magnum Force 5400 downswing grinder will become part of the system by the end of this coming June.
